ARC Review: A War of Swallowed Stars (Celestial Trilogy #3) by Sangu Mandanna

Friends, it’s been three weeks since I read and was destroyed by A War of Swallowed Stars. Emotional devastation wormed its way into my life with the conclusion of the Celestial Trilogy and to be honest? I’m okay with that because I love these characters so much and am thankful for the time I had with them. (Yes, Esmae and Sybilla and Max are all real to me, and I won’t be accepting criticism at this time.)

Dustborn is everything I wanted it to be and will be a book I shove lovingly to everyone I know and I’m not even remotely sorry about it.

ARC Review: The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Hi, The Beautiful Ones is absolute perfection: it made me feel so many feelings and I love it so much. I don’t read a lot of romance: I picked this book up solely because it’s written by Silvia Moreno-Garcia… and I think I want/need more romance in my life now???

This book ruined me and it took me almost two weeks to feel up to writing this review. The Beautiful Ones is a beautiful story of love and betrayal, of innocence and depravity, of conformity and passion, of youth and adulthood, of privilege and entitlement. Fast paced and instantly engaging, this book is told in the third perspective of three main characters who are inextricably linked and made me feel so many varying emotions while reading it.
